Financial Aid

South Carolina families interested in applying for financial assistance may do so within the online application. A limited amount of financial assistance is available and it is awarded using a need-based formula.

Financial assistance will be given until all funds have been awarded. Additional assistance may become available after the deadline, so please check with the camp director if the deadline has passed.

Financial assistance is awarded on a need and first-come, first-served basis.
